Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

if any Gods exist, there will be evidence, otherwise it is just Santa clause, the easter bunny, Zeus, and Athena, etc. A wish, A unicorn. 2000+ year old insistent myth. Let me address your assumption that there will be “evidence” for the existence of God. As an extremely fanciful thought experiment...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

If you were to teach that to that bunch of 17yos, how would you put that? I assume you are talking about the teens mentioned in your earlier post to Tesla: What has this to do with if God should be taught in school ? What do you mean by teaching God? I kind of see 15 yos rolling eyes and sigh here....

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

There is absolutely nothing easy (or logical) in assuming that the fantastic order of the universe is something that occurred without any design input, or teleological impetus. Btw, why do you ignore the problem that to explain the existence of the designer, we would need an even more fantastic ord...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

you are choosing an ideology that in your thought experiment there is an assumption of some real knowledge about it, when there isn't any 'real' knowledge. Yes, a thought experiment that attempts to explain why any “real” (irrefutable) knowledge of God would be prohibited. So of course there isn’t ...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

you appear to be discussing Christianity. Yes, to a certain extent, that is true. However, my approach to spirituality is more in line with Hermeticism, wherein it is suggested that all of the world’s religions contain an element (a piece) of the truth. It’s just that Christianity’s framing of our ...

Guess I should stop with the off topic comments. Why? The intent of the thread has already been killed so there is no reason to stop. Just continue and enjoy the kill. That is what Atla does, he spams threads in order to kill them. He can't argue, so he floods the thread with ad hominums. Aren’t al...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

Anything. Surely an omnipotent God would be able to reveal himself? Perhaps there is a reason for why God hides Himslef. Right you are, bahman. And in my own explorations as to what that “reason” might be, I have come to the conclusion that if God did not hide himself from us,... (and by extension,...

Re: Should 'God' be taught is school? (Non religiously)

Well, here's my question about that, and I mean it without a drop of cynicism. What "sign" was lacking? In other words, what kind of event were you looking for, that you did not see? What was missing? Anything. Surely an omnipotent God would be able to reveal himself? Perhaps there is a reason for ...

Re: What is the need for God?

What is the need for God? From my own personal perspective of reality, I suggest that a human asking the question... “What is the need for God?” ...is the metaphorical equivalent of a watermelon seed - suspended within the pulp of a fully-fruitioned watermelon - asking the question... “What is the ...
